Today Alex and I ended up ministering to a couple for most of the day. The boyfriend was a recovering alcoholic and welcomed us immediately. However, when his girlfriend Sherri found out we were there to share about what the Lord had done in our lives, she became angry. The Lord prompted me to change the subject. It turns out she was mad at God after her husband died and because her ex-husband sexually abused their daughter.
She disclosed she had a hard time with comprehensive reading, but she could follow along to someone else reading aloud. So, I asked permission to read through the 5 verses of the Bible with them and they both welcomed the idea. Before leaving, Sherri and I exchanged numbers, her boyfriend is excited about going to church with Alex this Sunday and she welcomed our prayers! God is so good!
As we exited the apartment, we noticed a large part of our group had gathered at our rally point. While just standing there, Maxine stepped out of her apartment and a little kitten tried getting in. I made a b-line towards them and the precious kittens. For all of those who know me, I was offered one of them and declined. This is huge, as I am an animal lover. I ended up getting to pray for her and going through the Bible and band with her, her daughter and granddaughter. Please continue to lift Maxine up in prayer as she is still grieving the death of her daughter who’s daughter she is raising.
